He's coming to michigan for a talk tonight and a longer thing tomorrow. I'm just attending tonights lecture. Just wanted to share because he'll be the only other raw icon I've seen in person since meeting Alissa. However one feels about 80-10-10, I've got to tip my hat to someone so committed to their truth. I'll share how it goes! Peace~

Yes, my perspective is that I'm willing to learn. they're all teachers to me, not gurus. I love mono eating fruit, not that that's all I do.

I have the book. I want to try his way in the summer cause it's cold right now and I'm very temp sensitive. Sounds fun, I've heard he gives a good lecturer.

Do you have more details about this? (place and times today and tomorrow)

I have heard him speak and it ended up being a small group so it was nice to be able to ask questions etc. You will definately glean alot from him......he's been raw for alot of years, so how could you not walk away and have learned valuable information. Enjoy yourself.

I did 80/10/10 last summer. Lost 15 pounds in one month. I believe it must have been a lot of water weight. And with no salt in my diet I was able to release it. It was that last stubborn 15 that I just could not lose on the raw food diet I was doing. I got back to a colder climate and got back into more nuts and avocados. It's harder when it gets cold. But I have stayed on track with the no-salt and have not gained any weight back. Once it gets a little warmer I am spending the whole summer 80/10/10 and see how it makes me feel.

I've started high fruit/low fat, no oil/salt/spices/seaweed, mono meals, and more tender greens this winter :)
It was mainly motivated by listening to my heart after reading the book the second time and watching durianriders' youtube videos the past 6 months. The videos can definitely be entertaining!! Let me know if you like em.
here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFW7dqXoJOg) he tries the cooked food diet

another funny (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HmHXwgfmnYA)
There are soo many other funny and/or informative ones if you look through his.
Is the raw diet affordable? (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lZuWeYdrXa4)
Eating this way in winter in the north it isn't terrible.. just a little expensive and/or has a lack of variety.
I've ordered cherimoyas, chocolate sapotes, canistel, passion fruit, sapodilla.
It's fun to try all this new stuff!! It would be weird on just bananas, oranges, kiwis, apples, and dates. Not overly boring per se, just some lingering fear that I wouldn't be getting enough variety of unknown nutrients in fruit and greens.

Thanks, everyone for sharing your 80-10-10 experiences. He was AWESOME tonight, truly. I had an impression that he was somewhat stern, etc, from interviews and vids I had seen, but not at ALL. He's a really good lecturer, completely off the top of his head (well, I'm sure with LOTS of practice) and funny, engaging and totally filled with information. He has powerful energy, the kind that one generates with intense, unwavering commitment to their truth for a long time. Its rare to see someone like that in person. When you do, you know it instantly.
I am completely inspired to do this (OF course). I really get what he's saying, and also, what you guys are saying about cold climates, cost and lack of variety, but where there is a will.....I bought one of his recipe books. that should help. He's awesome, if anyone has the chance to see him, check it out. I really do believe (and did before tonight) that 80-10-10 really is the most sustainable way to do raw. Its like, how good do ya wanna feel?

I was in Florida for my 80/10/10 stint. I had the most amazing fruit. It's good if you can have some mailed to you once and awhile. When you are doing 80/10/10 you get in a different state than you are now and every fruit/veggie/leafy green is so flavorful. You want to try different ones too. So I think our bodies naturally do this to get the variety of nutrients. I remember eating bananas rolled in iceberg lettuce and being in heaven. These were local Florida bananas though. It's hard to go back to the bananas we have here once I had a fresh local banana. Same for the mangoes. So I really believe quality of the produce helps you stay on this lifestyle. Fruit that is imported has been sprayed with chemicals or frozen or boiled before it can enter the US (even organic). But the good news is..California is producing more mangoes :)
